You want to give hulme end a go in the Manifold Valley in Derbyshire. Very good tunnel for some windows down exhaust action. I used to have a RS1600I with a Janspeed sounded good.

I thought a tunnel of love was a completely different thing...... :headscratch: :?
Great song! Dire Straits are one of my fave groups and "Tunnel of Love" is right up there with "Romeo and Juliet" or "Telegraph Road" as their best song. :guitar:

Thanks for the suggestion. I've had a look online and that tunnel looks almost identical to this one, albeit a little longer.
Windows down exhaust action is exactly what I'm after! :D

Hi Danny,
Yes that video works. Heck your car sounds amazing through there! :D
If I'm not mistaken, that's the Brynglas tunnel on the M4, one of my favourite places to drive the Capri!. :D

You shouldn't have crossed that solid white line though.....

Good knowledge Andrew! I was in Newport for a stag do, saw the sign for the tunnel and then insisted we go past the junction simply to go through it :lol:

And I know I shouldn't have crossed the line, though to be completely honest I only realised it was a solid white line after I crossed it :sorry:

:agree: Andrew.
We have the Tamar tunnel going into Cornwall, but it's 30mph so not much chance of hearing the pipes unless you do 2 second gear spirts :lol:
